ACHL v Staker Wallace

This game versus Stakers Wallace was played in Martinstown on Saturday afternoon. This was the last game in the league and a very worthwhile effort. Thanks to all for getting to Martinstown early on a Saturday. Playing against a stiff breeze we were under pressure from the start as Stakers moved the ball quickly and shot some good scores. After ten minutes, we were at the pitch of the game and responded with some excellent points. For the second quarter, we were in control and continued our good work, dominating in the backs and midfield and forwards scoring. The halftime score was Monagea 1-16 Stakers 0-9. Stakers started the better team and shot a couple of good points against the breeze. From there the game flowed with lots of loose hurling and long distance scoring on both sides. The final score was Monagea 2-26 Stakers 0-19. We have now completed our seven games in the league and have finished in joint second place. A couple of narrow defeats to Newcastle West and Drom, in games that could have been won, proved costly, but that is it for another year.
